BOARD 4. CAPTAIN WINS AGAIN. First to finish, Michael keeps his excellent win rate going. 1-0 to us
BOARD 1. MY FAVE DUTCH AGAIN. I got the feeling John Clarke was expecting my Dutch Defence and was well prepared for it as I struggled to get any sort of control and lost a lot of time trying for an even position. Finally, after pushing John’s pieces back, I was able to dominate an open file which won me the game. 2-0 to us
BOARD 3. NEW GARY WINS AGAIN. After finishing my game, I was able to watch the splendid battle between Gary and James. James may only have a grade of 74 but he is a mighty opponent and it took all of Gary’s attention to win his match. Well done, both. 3-0 to us.
BOARD 2. ANOTHER EVEN MATCH. Leon finally broke through and Bob had to give up his queen for a knight. He tried to hold on for a draw with rook and bishop against Leon’s queen and pawn but steady Leon found a way to win.
A 3-1 win for Broadstairs
Many thanks to Margate for a great evening.
